Very insightful!
Thanks for the reply,

I know their are variables but generally speaking.
If someone were compiling a very large program, which would get done first?
The dual 1 ghz. machine or the single 2 ghz. machine?

I'm leaning on the dual processor server. But really don't care to throw
money out the window.

Thanks again.

Any other reply's would be helpful.
